    I wanted to give the Ohio boys a shot at this, because it is our region that I will be targeting.

    I have getting alot of questions lately about What on Earth is a HillJack? Well after much thought (and the input of multiple BOC members), here is the definition that I composed. Somebody alert Websters dictionary, this is that good!! After reading tell me what you think? It makes me wonder how many of us would consider themselves a HillJack!


    What on Earth is a HillJack??


    Hillbilly + Jack of all Trades = HillJack

    The term HillJack refers to people who live in remote, rural, and somewhat mountainous regions of the United States (closely related to the people known as “Hillbillies” or “Rednecks”). A HillJack is competent at performing many skilled task (mostly manual labor), but is not the master of any one. The HillJack is described as an extremely proud American (somewhat backward and socially unsophisticated) who is willing to stand up for what He/She believes; never willing to compromise their integrity or values. HillJacks are a self reliant group who have been known to spend countless hours in pursuit of nature’s most prized creations: CATFISH, WHITE TAIL, and yes even a deer once in a while!

    I may live in KY but I spend a lot of time in Ohio, my G/F is from there and all her Family lives there. I'm only 2.1 miles from there. I'd have to say yes to that one.:cool2::wink:

    I really screwed up the post that I put in the general conversation portion of the forum........................i didn't add the poll.

    This post in the Ohio section is getting much more love than the other post in general conversation though.

    coinsidence............................I think not
